When you give to Park, you are investing in the work that God has called us to do as a church. As part of our mission to know God and make Him known, our vision at Park Community Church is to be a biblical community where the gospel of Jesus Christ transforms lives, renews the city, and impacts the world. This involves not only taking the power of the gospel to new neighborhoods in our city and to people around the globe, but also continuously investing in the lives of people across our existing church locations to see the gospel transform lives so they are equipped to do the same.

The Park Ministry Fund was established to support this vision and includes location-specific designations to track your financial gift to support ministry activities at the Park location you call home.

We believe that all followers of Christ who call Park home should give generously to support furthering the mission and vision of Park. Those that are still exploring Christianity, those that are still checking out Park, and all visitors are absolutely welcome to, but not expected to contribute financially at Park.

Like all aspects of our faith, God is always sanctifying us and helping us grow along the way. The first step to giving is making your first gift - no matter how large or small - with a cheerful and grateful heart!

We would then encourage you to take the next step of setting up a recurring gift. The next step is to grow in generosity; challenge yourself to prioritize what you give to the Lord and listen to the Spirit’s prompts in becoming more generous.

As Christ followers, we should constantly evaluate how generous we are because God is constantly generous towards us.

Gifts by cash, check and bank account (ACH) have the lowest transaction cost, meaning more of your money stays directly at your location!
